Hi all, I am new to this group and one of the ideas that came out of the last gathering was meeting up for lunch. I work in the North Scottsdale area and would love to meet up for lunch sometime in the next couple weeks with any of you. If anyone else is around the area and wants to meet up let me know! Comment on this post or find me on Linkedin.

Newly Relocated Information Architect

Hi All,

I've just relocated to Phoenix from Portland via San Francisco and have just begun my job search - I relocated due to family issues. It looks like most of the opportunities are for folks with graphic/front end dev skills with some lite ux. For the past 10 years I've focused exclusively on Information Architecture/Interaction Design and User Research - should I begin to think about getting back into coding and/or design? I'm also considering going the Project Management/BA route, as a large part of my job is requirements, schedules, etc...

Usability Testing Company Recommendations

Hey guys,

Does anyone have a website or company they recommend for some down and dirty user feedback? I don't need great depth to this testing nor want to pay a fortune. I would like the ability to specify a few tester demographics such as: male, ages 35-50, moderately tech savvy and considering a car purchase.

Profile Pictures

It's time to do some summer cleaning and clean up your IxDA profile!

Likely through no fault of your own, many profile pictures are broken or non-existent. Please help contribute to the vibrancy of our local community and update your profile and picture. I just went and updated mine, and it all appeared to be working correctly.
